Favour if possible from USA member

Hi,

I'm after a favour from a member in the states if possible please.

I recently lent my bike to Honda for an exhibition in the UK but my exhaust hanger bracket got damaged and i need a new one (Honda will cover the cost). Apparently the UK importer cannot get me another one as they say the bracket is no longer available from the supplier.

The bracket I need to get is an Arata one for a high level full system fitted to my 2002 blade (954 model).

If someone could try an Arata dealer there to see if they have any on the shelf or even get one in from the supplier and then let me know i would be very grateful.

Here is a link to some professional pictures taken before the exhibition, which was a display of a blade from every year of manufacture (mine is the 02 one with the exhaust system clearly visible) 20th Anniversary - Honda Fireblade | Facebook

Cheers
Simon

Why do you guys use the Spanish spelling?

Have you tried contacting Arata directly?

Re: Favour if possible from USA member

Yours is the red and black one, right. You are seeking the bracket that bolts to the pass. peg bracket mount, not the strap and rubber that holds the can right? Looks like it wouldn't be too hard for a machinist to make. Have it made and bill them double for your trouble.

Favour, Neighbour, labour, honour...
Or maybe we like the big red lines that always appear under our words, makes them seem more important.
